Run a kwin only session. Kubuntu 12.04


According to the Arch wiki it is possible to run kwin without KDE, is there an easy way to add plain kwin to my sessions menu (the drop down one on login)?

OK, in Fedora systemd permits runlevels.
While in *buntu, upstart has nothing related.

log in to a konsole
then launch kwin --replace
kill display managers if required
